Altice USA, the parent company of Suddenlink, is committed to supporting the success of local students in the face of the pandemic recovery. As part of a $1 million initiative impacting 30 school districts in the areas served by the company, Bryan ISD received 40 iPads and 700 earbuds with microphones. This donation increases access to virtual classroom opportunities, connectivity, and online curriculum for Bryan ISD students.
“At Suddenlink, we are proud to support the communities we serve and their school districts, who play a critical role in helping to develop the innovators and technologists of tomorrow,” said Mike Petty, Regional Vice President, Suddenlink.
“This donation will make an immediate impact, especially for our youngest learners, who we’ve found are more successful on an iPad as they continue to develop fine motor skills,” said Dr. Christie Whiteck, Bryan ISD Superintendent. “We’re grateful to Suddenlink for their support.”
Suddenlink is committed to ensuring broadband access for all and understands that now, more than ever, having the right tools to remain connected is just as critical as access itself. With this contribution, Suddenlink hopes students and schools can continue learning in this new, virtual environment.
